Artex is a surface coating used to create decorative finishes on ceilings and walls. Artex allows a professional plasterer or decorator to add texture and patterns to it. It was particularly popular in the 1970s and 1980s. It was banned in 1999. So, if your building has Artex coating on the wall or ceiling, and you are looking to remove it, you might need our help.
Now is it possible to skim over artex? Yes, it is. Skimming over an artex is a good way to achieve a flat finish rather than pulling down a ceiling or re-boarding. One has to be very careful with Artex as it contains asbestos which is harmful for the health as one might breathe in the fibers. If Artex is in good condition then it is safe to skim over it with a new layer of plaster. This can also help to make the material safer as it will hold the asbestos and lower the chances of it getting disturbed.
